|PCS: Bring your banner to support Ealing strikers (27 Jan) Were urging trade union members, supporters and campaigners to come to Ealing on Thursday (30) to show solidarity with our striking HMRC members by bringing their banners for a rally. Our members, who work at International House in Ealing, are facing huge uncertainty as HMRC plans to close their office. They have held 2 half-day strikes so far this year to oppose the closure, as well as a series of walkouts last year. The action last year secured an extension to the office closure date. However, commitments from HMRC, which could have allowed our members to continue their careers within HMRC, were then reneged upon and our members voted to take further strike action and action short of strike to continue fighting for their jobs. This week in an attempt to seek to persuade the employer to take our demands seriously on:
Wednesday (29) noon walkout
Thursday (30) noon walkout
Friday (31) full day strike action.
Bring your banner on 30 January
The branch is particularly keen for trade union members and community groups to bring their banners for a rally starting at 12pm near the office block in Ealing High Street on Thursday (30) to make a great show of solidarity. So come along and show support for our members who are fighting for their future.
